One of 15 Foods Excellent for Kidney Health: Fish

by KDB

Information, tips and recipes for adding fish to your healthy kidney diet.

Fish is one of 15 foods excellent for kidney diets and are a high quality source of protein recommended by the American Diabetes Association and the American Heart Association. It should be included two or three servings a week. Fish contain omega-3s which lower cholesterol and help prevent cancer and heart disease.

Best fish sources for omega-3s: salmon, albacore tuna, mackerel, herring and rainbow trout

How I Use Fish NOW

and what I can do in the future to continue being healthy.
  • in a spicy fish soup
  • baked in foil either in oven or on grill
  • also shrimp and crab

I always did like fish and funny enough most of my faves ARE the ones that contain the most Omega-3s so it's NOT that hard to add them to our diet.

I've begun writing out weekly menus and adding fish once a week.

I can continue by searching out new healthy and interesting recipes to try until it just becomes part of our weekly routine and hope that the addition to our diet WILL pay off later!

I simply want to share what I am learning throughout my own personalized journey to wellness. It has been said, "Write what you know." THIS I know because I live with it DAILY. Having said that:

Food has been a struggle for me for a long while now but I MUST work at this and TRY hard to eat right and healthy and improve as much as I possibly can for as long as I possibly can so I figured if I am struggling with these things DAILY and doing all this work and learning ANYWAY, why not SHARE things that I am learning with others and make their journey a little bit easier for them too.

SO, I started these pages as a help BOTH for myself and for YOU.

If it is helpful PLEASE feel free to let me know! ;)

This is a HARD process and journey to wellness and I hope that if even for a moment, even ONE item or idea or trick that I share makes your journey lighter or easier then I have given purpose and meaning to the reasons why or how this has been MINE as well.

I always wish you well and good luck with your journey too. xo
